Notes

100% Syrah

The de Villiers family has left deep footprints in the history of the South African wine industry through the centuries, and Kleinood and the Tamboerskloof wines are no exception. The French Huguenot, Jacob de Villiers, bought the wine farm Boschendal between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, after immigrating to the Cape of Good Hope in 1688. In the year 2000 Gerard de Villiers, a direct descendant of Jacob, and his wife, Libby, found the piece of land that stole their hearts – complete with mountains, river and a pristine tract of indigenous forest.

Winemakers comments:
'Our Katharien Tamboerskloof Rose 2018 is a very pale pink, salmon-colored wine. The nose is highly aromatic a with a broad flavor spectrum profile noting lychee, strawberry, raspberry, citrus and violets. Particularly food friendly and versatile, perfectly mimicking our award winning Tamboerskloof Syrah 2014 with its mouth-bursting intensity. Katharien has depth, is well integrated, balanced -even spicy. All the fruit is from premier vines and 100% Syrah. No acidification proves that this wine is rich with balanced mouth-feel. Chill to 13 ̊C and open 30 minutes prior to serving.' – Gunter Schultz

Viticulture:
The grapes were handpicked over three different dates between 19 and 24 degrees balling to obtain the full red fruit spectrum of the grape. The grapes were hand sorted across our sorting tables before being destemmed into an INOX basket press. Juice was settled overnight, where after the clear juice was racked off and 85% of the production was fermented in stainless steel tank and remainder fermented in 300L French oak barrels (5th fill).
